This week I wrote a to-do list for the major projects that I had on my plate. It seems I did pretty well; I’m one major project short and one workout shy of my intentions, but the rest are crossed off. Which means there is homework for me this weekend.
I have a gut feeling that most successful people out there have an outcome like this, so I don’t feel bad about not getting everything completed. I imagine that the people we look up to usually get a whole lot done, but the still end up shy of their goals. So they just keep plugging along and [wait for it] just keep going.
One thing that I’ve learned from my Midnight Hustling is that I can either do a lot of weekday night work or a decent chunk of weekend work. Doing both last week left me drained, dry, and not happy. So last weekend I took the two days off to purely rest, and this week I’ve worked a bit later, but not much past 6:30. This leaves me with plenty of energy and enthusiasm to work on my Midnight Hustle this weekend.
Interestingly, Mr. Lively and his freelance web programming Midnight Hustle (he’s making Big Cartel and Shopify sites for shop owners) as found the same lesson: multiple long weekend nights or work on the weekends cannot be mixed for his sanity. Though everyone has different temperaments for work, we seem to strike a similar balance.
As far as my thankful photos go, I really need to get better about taking photos during the week! To be completely honest, four of those thankful moments were snapped this morning. Not that I’m not thankful for them… but really I need to be more present during my other days to capture the cool things that happen seven days of the week.
Thanks for reading MML this week. I hope you have a great weekend!
